Gah, I feel the need to apologize again. I've been absent from VCM but creating up a storm of VC gifs on tumblr, the very place that nearly killed VCM :P
Let me explain u a thing, and I mean that in the gentlest way: sometimes I get these graphic creative urges and I barrage tumblr with the output of this. To barrage VCM with it (even though MEDIA is a obviously a goal of this place!) seems rude. Like a kid constantly drawing and shoving those drawings in your face. I don't want to be that kid. I'm very happy that people like what I do, I guess it's just easier on tumblr bc alot of them are strangers, and I don't have to worry too much about offending anyone.
Hosting these images on tumblr is actually a necessary step to sharing images in VCM anyway, bc they have to be hosted somewhere so that there's a link for DW to source the image from. It's just that I am usually to busy to then bring them into this personal journal area... which I think I still want to use as more of a place for text things that don't fit into VCM, like excessive walls of text or drabbles that outgrow their wordcount limit, rather than as an actual journal.
Anyway my point is that satisfying those creative urges is somewhat time & energy consuming in itself, and then I'm left sort of drained, too, and can't brain further in the discussion threads here... especially bc my need for thoroughness dictates that my commentary is usually Walls of Text.
I am trying to be more minimal in commentary though, and I think that's really helping :D
As an example of this creative output:thedeadorchestra
shared a gif on her tumblr and I was inspired, wanted to learn how to manipulate it by adding faces on it, frame-by-frame, and the result is pretty priceless, as well as being
quite offensive to one of our beloved OTPs. I added a few more gifs around it to enhance the crackiness...
Under the cut so that it doesn't interfere with my apologetic mood...( Brace yourself... )
